DIY Holiday Cheese Board

  • December 13, 2022

It’s that time of year…you know that time…party time! Whether you’re hosting a holiday soiree, a big family dinner, or a small wine and cheese night, my holiday charcuterie board will wow your guests! Follow the simple steps below to add a little holly jolly to your holiday tablescape.

What you’ll need…

  • 2-3 types of cubed cheese
  • small tomatoes
  • red & green grapes
  • berries
  • rosemary sprigs
  • thin pretzel rods
  • pita bread
  • tall cutting board
  • scissors
  • string
  • star-shaped cookie cutter

Step One

Turn your cutting board lengthwise. Make a long row of cheese an inch or two above the base of the board. 

Add a row of tomatoes above, about the same length.

Step Two

Continue to build your tree alternating the rows with grapes, cheese, berries, and tomatoes. Taper the rows smaller and smaller so you’re forming a long triangle or tree shape.

Step Three

Tie a bundle of pretzel sticks and place them at the bottom of the tree as your stump. 

Step Four

Garnish the board with rosemary sprigs.

Step Five

Cut the pita bread with your star-shaped cutter and place it around the board.

**BONUS** Season pie crust with various herbs, cut into star shapes and bake into crackers.

There you have it—a beautiful DIY cheese board for your guests. If you want to go the extra mile, you can always add in a row of deli meats, olives, or other fruit. And feel free to add a couple of small bowls of your favorite jams and dressings for dipping!

Happy Holidays! Don’t forget to share photos of your board and tag @MyBobs.


I consider myself the luckiest spokespuppet ever because I get to talk about the thing I love the most everyday – furniture! Tufted headboards, rustic finishes, the difference between a sofa and a couch (yes, there is a difference)… I could go on and on. Oh, I just love furniture and I’m SO excited that I have this blog to share my passion with you! It may take me a little longer to create posts – have you ever tried typing with clay hands – but I look forward to talking furniture with you!
